Who this event is for

  • Everyone




What happens when two people from different institutional backgrounds get together to plan an exhibition? How can they learn from each other? And what are the pitfalls to avoid? Their recent co-curated exhibition, Dreams and Nightmares (2019-20), will serve as a case study.

Christiana Payne is Professor Emerita of History of Art at Oxford Brookes. Victoria Partridge is Keeper of Fine and Decorative Art at The Higgins Bedford.
